Tomatoes are coming in. Damn, that pictures blurry. Anyway, about 1 out of 4 are doing this while still on the vine. Don't you worry, I still eat them. Certainly doesn't look very pretty, though. I water fairly religiously deeply every three to five days. Three days recently as we've topped out at about 104 F (40C) for the past week. Doesn't affect (effect?, ah too late to look up which is correct) the taste.
Anyway, things have been busy at Turling Castle. Tomatoes ripening, peppers ripening (sorry, no pictures of those as I've eaten them all) and the basil bolted. Son of a...after about two weeks in the ground!!! Is basil suppose to flower right away? I'll have to look that up. In the meantime, I'll be looking for a split tomato soup recipe. HA! Get it!?!?!
Oh, boy. Go plant something.
